We had a whole ‘nother episode planned, but the news be newsing. When Jussie Smollett was sentenced last week, it churned up all sorts of complex and complicado feelings in jh and Tre’vell, so they scrapped that day’s script and topic to revisit the conversation that had in December. So strap in to hear their reaction to last week’s decision, and see how their initial conversation holds up with what we know now. Plus, in this week’s Dis/Honorable Mentions segment, they both take aim at the alarming spread of anti-trans and anti-gay legislation being proposed across the country.

About the show
Sometimes the people, places, and things we love don’t love us back. We’re fans, but we also have some ANTI- feelings toward them. Every week on FANTI, journalists Tre’vell Anderson and jarrett hill bring their pop culture and political expertise to things we must stan and stand up against. FANTI is a place where nuance reigns supreme with energetic, complicated, and sometimes difficult conversations that bring deep knowledge and thoughtful perspective to the things we love and rage about, from the White House to the Real House(wives).
